CXC Math Topic: SETS (2010)
CXC Math Topic: SETS (2010)


GENERAL OBJECTIVES On completion of this section, students should: 1. demonstrate the ability to communicate using set language and concepts; 2. demonstrate the ability to reason logically; 3. appreciate the importance and utility of sets in analyzing and solving realworld problems.


SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES: Students should be able to:

CONTENT  
1.  explain concepts relating to sets; 
Examples and nonexamples of sets, description of sets using words, membership of a set, cardinality of a set, finite and infinite sets, universal set, empty set, complement of a set, subsets.

2.  represent a set in various forms; 
Listing elements, for example, the set of natural numbers 1,2,and 3. set builder notation, for example, Symbolic representation, for example, A={1,2,3}.

3.  describe relationships among sets using set notation and symbols; 
Universal, complement, subsets, equal and equivalent sets, intersection, disjoint sets and union of sets.

4.  list subsets of a given set; 
Number of subsets of a set with n elements.

5.  determine elements in intersections, unions and complements of sets; 
Intersection and union of not more than three sets. Apply the result

6.  construct venn diagrams to represent relationships among sets; 
Not more than three sets.

7.  solve problems involving the use of venn diagrams; 

8.  solve problems in Number Theory, Algebra, and Geometry using concepts in Set Theory.
